Love in Action: Writings on Nonviolent Social Change by Thich Nhat Hanh

Love In Action is unique among the books of Thich Nhat Hanh that I have read. It is a collection of essays written between the time of the war in Vietnam and the books publication in 1993. Many of the essays vary in character from one another, some very topical and, unlike most of Thays writings that I have read, of a certain time and/or place - but also with the transcending wisdom the reader may have come to expect. The reader will find much reference to war in the early going but later will find the topics varying, including the essay The Sun My Heart (subjectively, one of my favorite essays in the collection) which seems like a precursor to 2013s Love Letter To The Earth.

To the non-Buddhist like myself, Thich Nhat Hanhs ideas may seem to exist in a realm outside of the concrete to some degree. With Love In Action we see Thays words address the very realities of this world in a way that many of his writings do not. And as I finished this book I found that my appreciation of his writing has grown tremendously with new perspective of who he is. I suspect that reading of other of Nhat Hanhs books will be improved for me by this new perspective. Highly recommended.
